They’ll be a woman president on 24 this year. And McCain did make a guest appearance on 24, so maybe it was the 24 producers that gave him the idea for a female veep. That makes as much sense as this nonsense.
That's two characters who had better be either dead or established as traitors by the time (4 episodes) that '24s' famous double-teaser is over, or '24' can kiss the season goom-bye.
I have my doubts about this occurring, though, now that Joel Cernow is gone.
